Last week my husband and I celebrated our "lucky 13" - our 13th wedding anniversary.

Romans 8:28 says " And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." I have loved this verse for so long. It is so comforting for me to know that when things don't go according to my own plan, it is because God has something bigger and better for me in His plan! It took me a while to develop this perspective, because when things don't go as I planned I don't necessarily enjoy it. However, I do remind myself that His plan is always better!
So, are you wondering how my surprise vacation worked out???? We got to the airport last Monday morning, bright and early. We checked in and my husband handed me my boarding pass.... to San Juan, Puerto Rico! He took me to a beautiful beach resort even though he isn't too fond of the beach. We had a lovely week away to enjoy each other and celebrate 13 years of love and to not worry about anything else except our time together. My wonderful hubby knew just what I needed, just when I needed it.
